Benchmark Setup

For this setup, we used the following hardware setup with Windows SP2 and the latest drivers:

P4 Prescott 660 LGA 755 (3.6ghz)
1 gigabyte dual channel Kingston ram (4-4-4-12 timings @ DDR2-533)
120 gig Western Digital SATA Drive
Gigabyte X800
M-audio Revolution 7.1

Now, the motherboards used were a Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2 and of course, the Shuttle motherboard. Because the Shuttle motherboard didn't have an extra PCI slot for the m-audio sound card, an external computer was used as the host for sound tests involving that card.

Memory Performance

To kick things off, we tested the memory performance of the boards using SiSoft Sandra 2005.

The Shuttle has a slight lead here, but it's really not too significant. For all intents and purposes, they are the same which is not surprising considering the fact that the same chipset is used. Next we turn our attention to PCMark.

Let's take a look at some real world performance numbers shall we?
